Solenoid Performance Tips - Solenoid Rehab - Nitrous Power!
Most of us don't give them a lot of thought, but the solenoids in your nitrous oxide system are critical components that must be kept in good working order. These electromechanical valves control the flow of nitrous and fuel to your engine, so ifthey're malfunctioning, performance suffers. The internal plunger wears with usage and exposure to fuel vapors-this happens in both solenoids, but the nitrous side, being under pressure, sees the most plunger wear. Depending on how it wears, it can leak, causing a pressure drop in the system; on the other hand, the plunger can also swell and distort, blocking the flow of nitrous and causing an overrich mixture. NOS recommends that you examine the plunger seal in the nitrous solenoid every 20-30 pounds of usage-more often if you're using a controller that frequently cycles the solenoid. It's doesn't take long to do, and it's an easy way to help maintain peak nitrous system performance.
